Looking for beat-up old western saddle!
Hey Guys!

I am in dire need of a beat up old leather western saddle. Heck, it can be synthetic too. These are the only exceptions:

1- No broken tree please!
2- No wide tree,
3- Preferably around 15 inches.. 16 or 14 is fine =)

The leather can be dried and cracked, it can be missing stirrups, missing the off side billet, girth, and near side billet.. it dont matter!

I just need something good to break a horse in. I have a really nice new Wintec saddle, but i wont break a horse to ride with it because chances are it will end up thrown on the ground. It would be nice if it was in a condition where i could ride in it (if while saddle breaking, i get froggy and decide to hop on)

I'd prefer to spend well under 100.00... and absolutely no more than 100.00 if thats possible. I'll probably end up going on Ebay, but it was worth a shot to try here =)

That's not bad at all. Ebay seller will charge up to 50 bucks. :roll:

Trailblazers, do you sell a lot of saddles? I thought about selling a saddle of mine online.. didn't know if it'd sell though.
